IWMI’s Rachael McDonnell stresses the need for a more central role for water in climate action in an opinion article on Aljazeera.
An excerpt from the article is given below.
“Climate change is gutting global water security. We have solutions but lack the political will to implement them.
Even by climate change’s destructive standards, water is in an increasingly grim bind.
Droughts and monster floods are having devastating effects on the human civilisation, as the situations in much of Africa, Australia, and China attest. Water shares per capita continue to drop, particularly in places where there is little, to begin with. From rising sea levels to fast-disappearing glaciers, and hurricanes of unprecedented strength, water is headlining many of the planet’s most pressing problems.”
